Amariah E. Hill Cemetery (Click on title to see complete file)

Survey begun by Louise Cowell and Jean Gurkin April, 2013 and completed by Ted Hill from Baltimore in April 2014 when he was here visiting and Jean.

This cemetery is located about .1 mile at the back of the field next to the first house on the right after turning off Clay Bottom School Road on Ephesus Church Road. The GPS coordinates are N35°25.712, W77° 00164.  A couple of markers can be seen from Ephesus Church Road.  The cemetery is not maintained.  Because of many fallen trees, some very large, and the undergrowth it was not possible to get an accurate count on the number of unmarked graves. However we did find five graves with markers.  This cemetery is about 20 paces wide and 20 paces deep.
